Could your business or organization function without its system and critical data?
If you answered “yes,” then you’re an amazing exception and don’t need to read any further. If, however, you could not operate your business or organization without its system and critical data, you definitely need a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP). A DRP is a step-by-step process and/or procedure by which you protect and recover your system in the event of a disaster.
No matter how reliable your system, it’s always at risk for a disaster (i.e. crash). Crashes are very serious. About eighty percent of businesses that that go endure more than five days of system interruption will fail. A DRP, then, is like an insurance policy for your system and data. While there are plenty, here some of the major reasons why you should have a DRP:
o People. People make mistakes. Even the most seasoned, experienced, educated individuals accidentally delete files, enter incorrect information, and cause crashes.
o Systems Can Never Be Infallible. Nothing can, really. A system can attempt to purge every risk and possible failure, but something somehow fails and there’s always a new threat ready to come along.
o Weather. Even when forecasters accurately predict how a certain weather event is going to hit your region, you never know how it’s going affect your system. Organizations without a DRP might not be able to resume operations at all after a major weather event, and such could simply be a heavy snowstorm or severe electrical storm. These events can knock out your system for days.
o Clients. Technology has created tremendous advantages for business. On the other hand, it’s made people expect instant results and 24/7 accessibility. A disaster limits clients’ access and instantly frustrates them. A DRP makes sure your clients have either no or less interruption.
